Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380794764, Mass Market Paperback)There's a deliberate lack of excessive angst and glamour in Peter Robinson's books about Inspector Alan Banks and his fellow Yorkshire coppers, so first-time readers might think them bland. But under the books' placid surfaces, whole worlds of crime and justice are being worked out. In this ninth book in his increasingly popular series, Robinson gives Banks some serious problems of a personal and professional nature: a neglected wife and a ruthlessly ambitious superior. He also drops Banks into a frighteningly realistic neo-Nazi group called the Albion League, whose activities include drug dealing and murder. Other books in the series available in paperback include Innocent Graves, Final Account, Gallow's View, and Hanging Valley.

When the body of young Jason Fox is found stomped to death after pub closing hours, it looks like an open-and-shut case of a drunken brawl turned deadly. The victim had made racial slurs toward three youths in the pub, and since the three resist questioning, Eastvale's Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks and his colleague, Detective Constable Susan Gay, have no choice but to have them locked up. But they're out in no time, and Banks faces a furious Chief Constable Riddle who accuses him of laying the timber for a racial conflagration and demands that Banks leave the legwork to his underlings and run the investigation from his desk without further incident - or find himself on traffic duty.
